Debating

For several years now Redhill School has been one of the top Debating Schools in the country. We have won 2 out of the last three Gauteng Senior Debating Championships and 1 at a junior level. In 2016 one of our speakers was part of the 5 member SA National side that competed in the World Debating Championships in Germany – on the individual rankings she finished ranked 3rd in the world! In fact, we have produced at least one member of the National team for the last three years! In 2014 we had two! Redhill School has regularly produced Gauteng provincial speakers including 2 seniors and junior this year.

At Redhill School, we, have a tremendous amount of fun both at practice and during debates. Our speakers are learning a skill that will be incredibly useful no matter what career they follow and it is something that will remain after all the content learnt at school is forgotten. We have expert coaching and mentoring to allow students to develop from that first brave (often short) speech to a fantastic level of speaking and thinking.
